  1. The stark sidewalk, the foreboding backdrop of graffiti and the stooped posture of a faceless figure burdened with objects usually associated with weightlessness (balloons and cotton candy or feather dusters).

    Poetry in pixels.

  2. Great shot! Never has one picture captured more of L.A. than this. That guy is living the American dream in one of the hardest cities in the world.

    Merry Christmas, inflatable salesman.

  3. That pic is so LA it has a dodgers symbol tattooed on the back of its head, its a spanish speaking korean who lives off of 6th.
